If you are a regular mountain biker and ride steep, technical terrain, having your suspension serviced every 20 – 40 rides is recommended. For more recreational styles of mountain biking, once per year during an annual overhaul/tune-up is suggested.
How often should I get my mountain bike tuned up?
Higher Ground recommends riders do at least one tune-up a year, and potentially two or more tune-ups a year, depending on how often the bike is ridden and the types of trails encountered.
How often should I get my bicycle tuned up?
No matter how often you ride you should give your bike a tune-up at least once a year. Today we’ll learn how to tune up your bike, which I’d recommend doing at least once a year, or even every few months if you ride every day.
How many times a week should you mountain bike?
To keep progressing and improving your fitness, you ideally need to be riding your bike every two-three days, even if it’s just a turbo trainer workout. The minimum you can get away with and still see significant fitness gains is three rides a week.
How much should a bike overhaul cost?
Depending on how often the bike is used and under what conditions, an overhaul could be required once a year, every other year, or every 3000 miles. Unfortunately, an overhaul is not cheap. Costing around $200 labor (or more), add parts and this service can be tough on the pocket book.
Why does my bike need a tune-up?
Why getting a tune-up is important
A tune-up is like cleaning the sheets on your bed, it feels so amazing after! If a bike is not taken care of it can cause damage to its components. In extreme cases, it could lead to costly repair and the frame beyond repair.
